Mary J. Blige picked up the ‘Breakthrough Performance’ award for ‘Mudbound’ at the 29th Annual Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards Gala on Tuesday (January 2) in Palm Springs, California.
The singer/actress received her award wearing an Elie Saab Pre-Fall 2017 celadon, fully embellished gown with Juliet long sleeves.
My belief was that we were going to see a more darker, edgier side to her style for awards season with custom Balmain and Alexander Wang pieces, so this softer, daintier look came as a pleasant surprise.
I adore the beadwork and the bold shoulder detail, however, I would’ve preferred the velvet waist band over the bow ribbon detail.
Jewelry from Chopard’s ‘L’Heure Du Diamant Collection’ and ‘High Jewelry Collection’ rounded out her look.
